Description

Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies is an edited volume by Django Paris and H. Sami Alim including chapters by Tiffany S. Lee, Diné /Lakota, who is Dibé Łizhiní, Blacksheep, and born for Naałaní, Oglala Lakota. This book raises fundamental questions about the purpose of schooling in changing societies. Bringing together an intergenerational group of prominent educators and researchers, this volume engages and extends the concept of culturally sustaining pedagogy (CSP)—teaching that perpetuates and fosters linguistic, literate, and cultural pluralism as part of schooling for positive social transformation. The authors propose that schooling should be a site for sustaining the cultural practices of communities of color, rather than eradicating them. Chapters present theoretically grounded examples of how educators and scholars can support Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian/Pacific Islander, South African, and immigrant students as part of a collective movement toward educational justice in a changing world.
